Help Flint with AmeriFirst Mortgage

Dan Moyle  PORTAGE, MI
As many of you probably know, Flint, Michigan is experiencing a terrible situation right now. The drinking water in Flint, which used to be piped in from Detroit at a great expense, was switched to a local source and treated by a local water treatment facility. The water treatment didn’t work correctly, and caused the water to become tainted and caustic to the pipes in many homes. All of this lead to a dangerous situation: high lead in the drinking water.

Many organizations and individuals are now sending bottled water to the residents of Flint. Money is being collected as well.

As a company that believes in making a meaningful difference in the life of others, AmeriFirst Home Mortgage has pledged $25,000 to the “Moving Michigan Forward” fund to help fix the underlying problems in the Flint infrastructure. This goes beyond sending bottles of water, this will help fix the actual problem for our neighbors.

Now we’re helping the rest of the AmeriFirst Home mortgage team raise even more money to help our neighbors. In fact, we’d love to match (or more!) the donation from AmeriFirst!

Our neighbors are in trouble and need our help. We believe this as Michiganders, as Americans and as fellow humans.

Note: The GoFundMe account is set up by Dan Moyle, AmeriFirst’s Director of Marketing. This is due to the fact that GoFundMe requires a personal account, not a company account. AmeriFirst Home Mortgage will transfer the funds raised into a company bank account to then give to the Moving Michigan Forward fund.

This was a note from GoFundMe:

What a wonderful bunch of people! Thanks to all who've given and shared. So while AmeriFirst doesn't have a direct tie to Flint - no branch in the area - we certainly have ties to the city & surrounding area. After we launched the campaign, I received this message:
"Awesome! Love that we are doing this. My parents actually live in Flushing, a suburb of Flint and my father has been very sick for the past year. They are looking at it potentially being Legionnaires disease. Although their city is telling the residents that their water is from a different system, it is very scary." -Rebecca G.
So thank you for helping us help our neighbors. No matter how far removed we may seem, we're often not that far from a connection.
